Lion Hunters, The (1951) - The Hunters Have Sent Me Young Woody Strode (as "Walu") in his big scene, which is tiny, with Johnny Sheffield ("Bomba"), caged Douglas Kennedy ("Marty"), Ann Todd (as "Jean") and Smoki Whitfield (Jonas) in the Monogram serial The Lion Hunters, 1951.
Desire Me (1947) - Sounds Like A Man Going Home SPOILER here, as we see that ex-POW Paul (Robert Mitchum) really is alive and returning to Brittany, where his wife Marise (Greer Garson), believing him dead, is selling his business (to Morris Ankrum) and is near to marrying his ex-comrade Jean (Richard Hart), who kind-of left him to die, in the MGM wartime melodrama Desire Me, 1947.
High Wall (1947) - Youre Not Getting Out After successful brain surgery which he long resisted, war vet and father Kenet (Robert Taylor), still believing he killed his wife, seeks release, doctors Lorrison (Audrey Totter), Poward (Warner Anderson) and especially Dunlap (Moroni Olsen) evaluating, in High Wall, 1947.

Borderline (1950) - Sucker For Dames The head customs cop (Morris Ankrum) grills suspects (Peggy Converse, Clifton Young) about a drug smuggler with L-A cops (Howard Negley, Claire Trevor as "Madeleine") listening in, then offering an idea, hints of comedy, opening Borderline, 1950, with Fred MacMurray and Raymond Burr.
Chain Lightning (1950) - Make Him Come Down! Distinctly not-bad special effects, Roy Roberts a general running a flight test, Raymond Massey the aviation kingpin, Eleanor Parker the panicked girlfriend of the pilot, revealed to be Humphrey Bogart, Stuart Heisler directing, opening the jet-age melodrama Chain Lightning, 1950.
Along The Great Divide (1951) -- He'll Hang By Government Rope Opening scenes, new marshal Merrick (Kirk Douglas) with deputies (John Agar, Ray Teal) tries to stop rancher Roden (Morris Ankrum) from hanging Pop (Walter Brennan), in Raoul Walsh's Along The Great Divide, 1951.
